The light appeared in the cloud bank above my apartment complex, fairly high in the sky. It moved southwest, stopped, and moved northeast on a parallel path. Then it disappeared behind a tree and appeared again to the south of the original locale. Then it disappeared totally in the clouds. I only saw one and it was orange in color, but that could have been the clouds altering the light. Shortly after I witnessed this, I did see a commercial aircraft headed north, I imagine it was bound for the Indianapolis airport. I am an employee in the local mall and am 21 years of age. I grew up just north of this town and know the area fairly well.
